The Schenectady Pipe Band, a Celtic heritage organization based in upstate New York is proud to announce the celebration of their centennial year. As one of the oldest bagpipe bands in North America, The Schenectady Pipe Band was formed in 1917 when a stone cutter from Vermont named Isaac Riddell was chosen as the band’s first Pipe Major. Mr. Riddell relocated to Schenectady NY and began a 100 year tradition of musical excellence that, in addition to winning the band multiple musical awards and championships, has showcased their talents for international dignitaries, rock stars and thousands of loyal fans.
On November 27th, The Schenectady Pipe Band will present “A Century of Sound” at Proctors GE Theater. We’ll record our second CD to commemorate the Centennial that afternoon, with lots of new music that the Band has been rehearsing. We’re doing this in partnership with the Schenectady St Andrews Society.
Get your tickets early at Procters website as there are only 440 seats at this awesome venue. You’ll want to be part of this live recording. The concert begins at 3 PM, and an after concert gathering is planned at the AOH Celtic Crossing, 1748 State St.
